Since first opening their doors nearly 40 years ago, Dooley Construction has grown into one of the largest contractors in the Upper Keys. Staffing full-time craftsmen, as well as expert subcontractors and vendors for special projects, allows Dooley Construction to provide not only excellent craftsmanship but outstanding service. Through their years of experience, the Dooley Construction team is one of the few who knows what it takes to build in the Florida Keys.

The success and longevity of Dooley Construction can be attributed to that hard-to-find combination of high quality, efficiency, and consistent dedication to each job. Dooley Construction has also been able to meet the changing demands of the times, and has developed a very experienced permitting team to accommodate increasingly complex building and planning issues. This team works directly with customers on a one-on-one basis to handle the details of local and state building codes as governed by particular Village, County, and State agencies.


Born and raised in Miami, our founder Mike Dooley was raised in the construction/development industry. Mike’s parents opened Dooley Real Estate in 1953 and became instrumental in the development of the Hammock Community of Devonwood on Old Culter Road and Ludlum. Dooley Realty’s headquarters can still be found today in its original location at S.W. 124th Street and US 1.

Mike Dooley has been building homes, additions and commercial buildings in the Keys for 40 years. His son, Casey Dooley, joined the team 10 years ago. Along with his State of Florida General Contractors License, Casey’s general computer knowledge and advanced software experience has kept Dooley Construction moving forward in this ever changing industry and tech world. Together, Mike and Casey continue to maintain the quality standards and principles established by Dooley Construction and ensures that tradition will continue for years to come.

“If you are looking for a contractor who is going to be low bid and finish ahead of schedule, you are talking to the wrong outfit. What you do get from Dooley is workmanship that you will feel very comfortable with at a fair price and delivered in as timely a manner as is possible under current circumstances. You will also find Dooley to be a person of integrity in that he doesn’t verbally color facts or construe circumstances. I invite a prospective customer to personally tour a recent completed facility, at which time you will see for yourself a finished product that one can be proud of.”

“It is a pleasure to recommend Dooley Construction and especially Mike Dooley. He built my home in Tavernier and it was completed on time and with the finest quality. Mike is easy to work with, very accommodating and the best of all, he stands behind his work. In the past 12 years, he has maintained our home and handled minor repairs and emergencies in a prompt manner. Mike doesn’t build a house and forget you!

Over the years, Mike has made several changes to our house. This summer, he installed new decking while we were hone. He is currently re-doing a small cabin we have on the ocean. Mike handles jobs from cabin size to mansion size. I recommend him highly.

“Mike Dooley recently remodeled my home located on Old Highway on Plantation Key. The improvements were extensive and quite complex and our desire was for only the highest quality of work. Mr. Dooley and his staff performed excellent work and we are well satisfied with the results. Mr. Dooley put together an excellent team of craftsmen that were not only talented but polite and respectful of our property and to us personally. I would not hesitate to offer my highest recommendation to Mr. Dooley. He is honest and does everything within his power to provide complete customer satisfaction.”
